A review of "The Humane Interface" by Jef Raskin (23 May 2000)
This is just a taster of what Jef Raskin sets out to detail, examine and provide solutions, in this slim volume which runs to just a few pages over 200. There are few pictures and it quickly becomes evident that it is a thoroughly researched and academic study. The list of acknowledgments and the strength of the names on the list is impressive. Equally impressive is the reading list of references given at the end. The introduction left me in no doubt that Raskin meant business. The concluding paragraph suggested that we might be in for a treat. Jef Raskin was about to explain the "how" of what Alan Cooper defined as Interaction Design and the underlying engineering problems needed to make it happen.
